>> yeah. >> good mornin i'm tony perkins. >> i'm allison seymour. tucker barnes is down in the weather center. >> always a wonderful wednesday and the first day of a new month so let's start off without setting a lot of weather records. all indications are temperatures will be where they should be 80s to 90. going to be warm and humid and good chance we'll see showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon so be ready for that. we have some out there at moment here. just looking at radar 50 towards crofton and bowie with light showers and another little cell trying to be -- to contain thunder and lightning falling apart southwest of leesburg. very warm, humid atmosphere in place. with a cold front we'll see more showers and thunderstorms. so bring an umbrella just in case. temperatures relatively mild here considering we have a lot of cloud cover.

9:02 am
police will tell us that this condo is connected to the case but they aren't saying if that woman lived there. numerous people called 911 after hearing the deadly hit- and-run. police say the woman was struck by a vehicle in the parking lot of the lifestyle condos an left to die. she has not been identified. at the same time, about a block away on center street as well, police found an abandoned black toyota camry that struck several parked cars. given the proximity, police believe that camry may also be tied to the deadly hit-and-run and police say the toyota plowed into those cars and didn't attempt to stop. >> looks like it was a fairly high speed accident into the last vehicle in the road there that drove all the cars parked along that side there one into the other. the investigators are trying to locate the owner of the vehicle to determine who was driving it. they are also trying to identify the adult female who
9:03 am
was deceased. once she's identified, we will try to notify next of kin. >> reporter: police stopped short of calling the person a suspect. at the scene you can see police back out here going over the crime scene where the woman died. there doesn't appear to be any type of skidmarks on the pavement here suggesting that the vehicle attempted to stop meaning this vehicle likely struck that woman and just kept going. that's the latest here in herndon. back to you. >> sherri, thank you. also new this morning, detectives are investigating if two robberies at two different 7-eleven stores are related. first one was at 4:00 a.m. at 2000 block of east/west highway in hyattsville then 4:40 then another one. no one was hurt in either

9:07 am
>> if we start having governments issue permits or issue zoning, uhm, changes or withholding those because of someone's religious beliefs, we are going down a very, very bad road. >> the comments from chik-fil- a's president prompted criticism nationwide including this protest last week at chik- fil-a's food truck in the district. mayor vincent gray said he would not endorse the expansion of chik-fil-a in d.c. and the mayors of san francisco, chicago and boston have publicly said the restaurant is no longer welcome in their cities. taking a look at the latest olympic medal count this morning, china and the united states both have 13 overall medals but china has 13 gold and the u.s. has nine. japan has 13 medals but only one gold. and france actually has four golds and 11 overall medals. and one of the golds is
9:08 am
from a huge win from the u.s. women's gymnasticses team. they routed the russian, chinese and romanian teams to take the gold the first time in 16 years. and they won big coming in 5 points ahead of the russians. something very rare in gymnastics. jordan weaver, began did i douglas and maroney set a relentless pace that the russians couldn't match. also another history making record from michael phelps. the baltimore native won his all-time 19th olympic medal yesterday. wisdom marcus has the story. >> reporter: he stands all by himself because he is now the most decorated olympian of all time as the u.s. took gold in the 200-meter freestyle relay yesterday. now, he was the final swimmer on his team and the roars from the crowd got louder with each stroke when phelps touched the wall, he finally had that gold at his final olympics. and a record for all ages.
9:09 am
now, the medal in the relay was the 19th olympic medal. phelps got his 18th silver medal an hour earlier in his signature 200-meter butterfly event. 15 gold breaks a record that stood for 48 years. phelps got a late-night congratulations from the white house. president barack obama tweeted him, saying congrats to michael phelps for breaking the all- time olympic medal record. you've made your country proud, signed bo, clearly that's for barack obama. he replied thank you, mr. president, it's an honor representing the usa, the best country in the world. that's how he carved out his place in history ars the most decorated olympian of all timed and he still has a couple of more ee -- of a time, and he still has a couple of more events. all of this with littl effort. he didn't train that hard. >> he said he didn't train the right way. >> a couple of days ago this narrative seemed to be going in
9:10 am
another direction entirely. >> it looked like he was just going through the motions and say, all right, well, it's over now. but it turned out okay for him. he's a winner. imagine with a little more effort, who knows what could have happened. >> all gold, right. >> all gold. >> he did put in some effort. >> thank you, wisdom. coming up an embarrassing disaster? that's how an obama aide reached to mitt romney's overseas trip. why a romney aide lost his cool. that's coming up ahead. >> plus, president obama slaps new sanctions on iran as one author explores our problematic relationship with that nation. those problems have been passed down through five presidents. i'm sitting down with the author of the book "the twilight war" when we come back. it's 9:10.  over ththe next four months, you hahave a choice to make.
9:11 am
not just between two political parties, or even two people. it's a choice between two very different plans for our country. governor romney's plan would cut taxes
9:12 am
for the folks at the very top. roll back regulations on big banks. and he says that if we do, our economy will grow and everyone will benefit. but you know what? we tried that top down approach. it's what caused the mess in the first place. i believe the only way to create an economy built to last is to strengthen the middle class. asking the wealthy to pay a little more so we can pay down our debt in a balanced way. so that we can afford to invest in education, manufacturing, and home-grown american energy for good middle class jobs. sometimes politics can seem very small. but the choice you face, it couldn't be bigger. ♪ i'm barack obama and i approve this message. ♪ look at this bed! this nightstand! this wardrobe! what are you doing here? you're in ikea. my dream bedroom is in ikea?
9:13 am
yes. what's that bedroom over there? that's your husband's dream bedroom. whatever your style, take home your dream bedroom together. ikea. the life improvement store. we are 14 weeks away from
9:14 am
the presidential election and the race to the white house is close. presumptive republican presidential nominee mitt romney is back home in boston this morning after a week-long trip overseas. romney made campaign stops in britain and israel before concluding his trip in poland. and that's where a heated exchange took place between reporters and a romney campaign aide at a memorial for pope john paul ii. >> show some respect here. >> we haven't had another chance to ask him questions. >> [ bleep ] this is a holy site for the polish people! >> mitt romney had a hard time some say abroad struggling through a series of missteps that drew criticism from british and palestinian officials. in the meantime, president barack obama is expected to make a campaign stop in ohio today. tomorrow, the president will be closer to home addressing a crowd in leesburg virginia. and there's also good news for the president in the form of a new poll out this morning. a survey from quinnipiac university, cbs news and the "new york times" shows president obama leading mitt
9:15 am
romney in three key swing states. the president has a six-point lead in ohio, florida and a 9- point lead in pennsylvania. no one has won the white house since 1960 without winning at least two of those states. the poll also found broad support in those states for president obama's proposal to raise taxes on households making more than $250,000 a year. president obama slaps new sanctions on iran just as congress is set to approve even stricter sanctions later this week. he says, "if the iranian government continues its defiance there should be no doubt that the united states and our partners will continue to impose increasing consequences." the new sanctions are on foreign banks in china and iraq that the u.s. says helped iran evade international penalties. conflict with iran has been a problem for american presidents over the years and what you may not realize is how bitter debates miscalculations and betrayals nearly brought the two nations to the brink of
9:16 am
war. historian and author david crist explores these and other revelations this is new book, "the twilight war," the secret history of america's 30-year conflict with iran. he joins us now to talk about it. thanks for coming in. good to have you here. >> thank you for having me. >> this has been a very complicated relationship. it's hard to remember the fact that at one time, these -- we were friends with iran during the time of the shah as a matter of fact. let me ask your opinion about sanctions like the ones that the president is imposing now. do these sanctions -- are they going to have any impact on iran and its policies and its ambitions? >> the sanctions will be building ever since the bush administration actually. there's a continuity in policy between the democrat and republicans on this. i think as the sanctions increasingly bite on the iranian economy, the oil exports down a third, and the
9:17 am
diplomatics efforts combined with a robust military presence in the gulf, i think the combination of all these have historically offered the best chance at least at getting iran to at least go along with our -- with the international community's desires on this. >> so it's not a foregone conclusion that we are headed towards war with iran? >> no. i think it's always better to talk than to fight. and throughout history, the iranians have shown a remarkable ability to step away from the brink of the cliff just as it appears we're headed to war. so i don't think it's a foregone conclusion. however, even if we resolve the nuclear issue, it doesn't change the ultimate dynamics of the relationship and the antagonism has been there since 1979 and i don't see that changing anytime soon. >> any relief in that coming? >> not so much. i think the -- one of the
9:18 am
fundamental problems we face is the revolution in 1979 the young students who shouted, down with the shah and over through an up popular american- backed dictator. now gray in their beards. but their attitudes haven't changed. so i don't think until this current supreme leader leaves and you have a new generation of leaders in iran, that they are going to -- i think we're going to make the strides that i think we would really like to see as far as rapprochement with iran. >> this book is detail. your research started in 1994 and you conducted 400 interviews. were there any surprises, any thing surprised you that had gone on during this time? >> many things. the insight of the way the u.s. has grappled with the problem. it's been interesting. but sometimes the most amazing stories actually fall into your lap. and i was contacted by a woman
9:19 am
who claimed that her father had been a spy for the u.s. government and had been hanged as a result of it. during the interview a number of stories started fitting together about this guy's life and what he did. he was indeed a spy for the u.s. government. he is an iranian navy captain and turned out to be one of the most important agents we had. he tipped off the u.s. government to a massive iranian attack on saudi arabia that would have led to a war in the middle east. and as a result, he compromised himself and was executed for it. >> hm. all right. the -- i want to talk about where we go from here. you say it's always better to talk and war is not an foregone conclusion. we have an election coming up. we have gone through five presidents in the last 30-odd years with the relationship with iran. do our policies change dramatically from president to president? or are we handing off the same problem and do we approach this
9:20 am
in kind of a unified way from president to president? >> it's a great question. the one interesting thing about the last 30 years in each as you said five administrations is there's a surprising continuity between the presidents. relationship has ping ponged back and forth between peace and war. every president has had to grapple with the prospects of going to war with iran or the potential there might be a diplomatic breakthrough. so i think no matter how it turns out in november, whether it's president romney or president obama, they are largely going to fall back on similar policies. >> very interesting. weigh could talk for an hour about -- we could talk this for an hour about this, mr. crist, thank you for coming in. you're going to be at the international spy museum for a briefing and book signing for today at noon and, of course, the spy museum is in northwest d.c. our holly morris has been there all morning long. so thank you very much for coming in.
9:21 am
appreciate it. >> thank you. >> allison, back to you. still ahead, the beltway ufo no longer a big mystery. a look at the future of military planes is straight ahead. >> also, a major mission for nasa. monday we could learn if there is life on mars. details on the highly anticipated mars rover landing. that's next. first, let's check in with holly at the spy museum. good morning. >> reporter: that's right. speaking of major missions, i have to get in, investigate, get out and not be detected. in other words, i need to learn to be a ninja so it's a good thing i'm at the international spy museum signed up for spy camp. we are going to learn the techniques of these special warriors as we continue to find out the science behind espionage. it's all coming up on "fox 5 morning news." stay with us. q

9:25 am
than ever before. nasa's mars rover curiosity is set to touch down on the red planet very early monday morning. this is animation of what it might look like. getting it there is an operation that relies on precision, perfection an impeccable timing. earlier this morning, we spoke with nasa administrator charles bolden about the importance of the mission. >> the big objective is to help us determine whether life is existent on the planet, whether it could have existed before, and what is the potential for life being sustained there in the future. since we're trying to put humans on mars in 2030, in response to president obama's direction to nasa to do so. >> nasa will broadcast live images from curiosity as it lands and the video will actually be played on a massive screen in new york city's times square. what if they do and it's live and we see the pictures and something leans in and waves. >> wouldn't that be interesting. >> or would it be frightening? >> a little of both actually.
9:26 am
>> here's something that frightened people too. >> the navy finally has taken the wraps off what many people have dubbed the beltway ufo. the experimental aircraft got the nickname after drivers spotted it just driving on down i-270 and 495 last month. and they began snapping pictures and tweeting that they had seen what they thought was a flying saucer on a flatbed truck. well, yesterday the media got a sneak peek of what the future of military planes may look like. the navy is hoping the x47b will be a new wave of unmanned military aircraft. it's flown completely by computer. if it loses contact with air traffic controllers, it flies right back to its base like a homing pidgeon and is supposed to be able to take off and land on aircraft carriers. the navy says they will be putting that to the test next year. >> extraordinary. >> isn't it? >> wow. >> all right. coming up, an amazing love story that shows that you can't keep true love apart. you're not going to want to miss this. >> and you may have seen a few

9:32 am
getting pop-up showers and thunderstorms right into the beltway currently dry a lot of cloud cover and later this afternoon i think the showers will start to fill in here. the thunderstorms, too. there could be brief heavy downpours so be ready for the possibility. definitely bring an umbrella here as conditions at any point today with this rather unstable atmosphere we could see showers and storms very many. a bigger picture you will see the cloud cover there you go, what's happening a cold front off to the north and west is pushing in here and it's the -- air behind it is actually not cooler but it's drier so that will wring out the atmosphere as it moves through during the course of the day. you can see already we have had some showers develop overnight and with some daytime heating actually the best chances will be a little later today that we get some widespread rain showers and thunderstorms. currently 75 cloudy out at reagan national. you saw in the live shot a few minutes ago, 78 in annapolis. it's holding temperatures down temporarily. we'll see sunshine at some point and temperatures will warm up quick. 72 leonardtown, 60s north and
9:33 am
west, winchester 68, and 69 in martinsburg. looking at the futurecast put it in motion, we can find at 1:00, you can see a little bit of sunshine trying to break out and some showers now out to the west. then by 3, 4, 5:00, you can see the scattered nature of the showers. but anything that gets going could drop brief heavy downpours. be ready for that. clearing out overnight and sunshine back in the forecast tomorrow and hot. but not too much humidity. 89 today. partly sunny skies, scattered showers and storms back, winds south and west at 5 to 10. early shower tonight, humid, partly cloudy overnight, 71. here's your five-day forecast. tomorrow, definitely on the warmer side with highs in the low 90s but low humidity, hot and humid on friday with highs in the mid-90s, saturday and sunday if you have outdoor plans, have fun this weekend. i think generally it's going to be dry but each afternoon a chance for a scattered storm with highs in the low 90s. that's weather, allison, tony, back to you at the dis. >> thank you, tuck. torrential rains caused

9:35 am
humans. instead, they eat harmful insects. so they are actually beneficial insects. they eat mosquitos. and because we have seen an increase in mosquitos during the warm, humid summer, that's why we're seeing more dragonflies because it's like a buffet for them. >> or are they sending good tidings from above in some poem say that they have the power to go between different planes like if you believe in heaven and down here and all that. so maybe the angels are saying, hello. >> didn't delve into that with the weather guys. >> too much. still ahead snoop insert animal here he is splitting with his well known moniker to appeal to a different audience he says. >> what? >> the animal he is turning to now, that's next. maybe snoop dragonfly? >> that would be good actually. >> plus, cuba gooding, junior is a wanted man. seriously. find out why he is in trouble with the law when we economic in with tmz. the buzz bin is next. stay with us.
